I always go into music videos with really low expectations but THAT WAS EXCELLENT.

Really elevates my estimation of the song too. And I already really liked it. Major kudos guys.

And I might have the tiniest crush on the Grand Theft Guitarist (Chad).

the tiniest crush? I fall in love with him a little bit more every time I see his cute little face.

I love the concept etc of the video, and the latter half is excellent. But in the first half i'm sort of bugged by the out-of-focus effect that seems to effect the border of it. Like, half the shot is in focus, and half of it isn't. And it works really well with the 'manic' feel of the latter half (once the blood appears), but at the start it seems odd to me. idk.

at first i was surprised to see this thread because i thought Amanda would inform us about the release of the video first but since it's on her channel it's ok i guess. it's just that a few weeks ago i saw that the agency of the actor in the video had uploaded the video on youtube, and i talked to Hayley and they took it down because it was supposed to be part of a big announcement from Amanda's team. i guess everything leaks a bit sooner in the end.

apart from all that though this is my fave Amanda video for what is quickly turning out to be my fave Amanda song. i've never felt more proud about an artist i follow, in my life. (and more jealous of the people that are receiving their stuff and i'm still stuck on the second 7" vinyl)

maybe it takes place somewhere in between fantasy and reality, dream world or consciousness

yeah, i thought a long those lines: when she starts to squeeze the heart and all the blood starts to explode i think that is supposed to be like a fantasy; then it just gets far to out of control/chaotic and quickly brings us back to reality at the end with amanda looking shocked and scared that she had this type of fantasy/thought with her caressing the heart. i know i am probably stating the obvious but yeah...
...i can't stop watching this, overall i think it's visually stunning.

also, do you think that beds and hearts will continually reoccur in the future videos?

i was also surprised when someone alerted me that it was up... i thought they'd have it on private until the release announcement and i didn't want to share it at first but within a couple of hours it was all over the social networks

well the bed song and rockstar videos have beds for sure (we've seen them on the "makin' of" photos) but i'd be cool to include some hearts in there as well

my concern was that it didn't seem to have the full credits, it was simply marked as "the killing type". also nme promised some more clips from the shoot that would prepare us for the final thing. on the one hand i'm glad it's out because i really wanted to talk about how awesome it was but i'd promised Hayley i wouldn't share it until they decided it was time, on the other, i hope this leak was deliberate because it'd be a pity if it spoiled amanda's plans

When I hear this song, I always think, "but I am the killing type, we all are" so I'm really chuffed that the video seems to be elaborating on that theme. I also enjoy how the song has this clean, poppy Cars feel at the start but then devolves into the dirty rock sound and then just collapses.

I like how the curtains appear at times to be romantic gauzy bedroom draperies and then plastic sheets for a sterile medical room. The blurriness is distracting but I think the editing is good, particularly when matching some of her facial expressions in the two scenarios.

So who is the guy in the bed? Is it someone we should know or is that an "actor"?

I really hope she blogs on this. How many takes? How much laundry? Did they do the bed/chocolate/blood scene more than once? Who was the editor?   :D

the sterility of the room reminds me of how Dexter prepares the scene before he kills someone. as for the guy in the video he is a British model/actor named Anthony Dowding

Oh yes, I remember when she was soliciting for an older British actor on twitter. Must play dead and look good in underwear. Time to rewatch "What's the Use of Wondrin'" Is Neil aware that there is a theme developing here....

Yeah, Dexter was the first thing that came to my mind when we saw the guy lying on the bed, amanda sat up, surrounded by plastic-y curtains. I wonder if it was an intentional reference...

I wonder if it was used to keep the studio they were working in from getting covered with "blood"!

I admit, I went fangirl over this one. I watched it over and over, and once my boyfriend came home for lunch, I subjected him to it, and then we madeout on the hallway floor. Which I mention because it was a direct response to the video.

....and Amanda released it in a backer update just now :)

Someone reuploading this video (to Youtube or Vimeo) would be appreciated enormously. It's not available in Germany and using a free proxy for YT is somewhat problematic.

The pure white innocence of love going wrong descends quickly into madness. Wow. The bloodredness of it is overwhelmingly necessary to convey all the feeling caught up in the lyrics, in the intonation.
Congratulations. To you all.
The heart in your clean hands at the end. I'm not the killing type. Fuck. We own that emotion. xoxo

i think i watched this 10+ times last night i love it. her eyes during the bit her entire face and body is covered in blood truly terrify me.

the emotions on her face as well. amanda always shows emotion in her face but there were some moments in that video where those facial expression plus the lyrics and music = just a whole pile of  :'(

i've said it on facebook but when amanda + gto come back to Oz i am so going to one of their gigs dressed in white and covered in blood... i think more people will be shocked that i wore something white but anyway.


EDIT: I just read some of the youtube comments and now i want to get all killing type on some of them  :violent1: :violent1: :violent1: :violent1:

Here's another option for the people from Germany:

Go to www.tape.tv
Search "The Killing Type" - you'll find the official video! It's not in HD unfortunately...

If someone could rip the HD version and upload it to a filesharing site, pleeeeaasasseee

WOAH. when she first smacks the actor's chest and all the blood splatters everywhere. so much emotion in this - I especially like the fact that it does go back to the super-white surroundings at the end and the heart has almost no blood on it at all.

(the vevo page is also suggesting I watch nicki minaj instead but that aint gonna happen!)

On first viewing, this gentle soul is a bit grossed out. Beautiful imagery but over the top which I know well that Amanda goes to. Admittedly I grew up a bit sheltered but real life gore and death have hit close to home so this video put me off a bit. Maybe my life is so sad and difficult right now to appreciate the video in the same way my twisted yet naive twenty year old self would have? Some of the lyrics resonate deeply with me as always-I remember wanting someone to care as much as I did but now if they don't I keep moving on.

OMG, could I be more jaded than Amanda?

It actually took me out of the story a bit when she smacks his chest and the fake blood splashes. It made me laugh, because it is a bit silly that it was pooling on him, but I definitely wasn't pulled in farther because of it.

I love how she can make a (1920's style?) gown look commanding and strong instead of demure and delicate. I wonder how many takes it took for the splattering of the band?

I guess I should say hello to my fellow heathens as this is my first post. I am beyond excited to see AFP+GTO this month and equally fascinated by all the people who would populate Amanda Palmer's fanbase. I look forward to arguing and shooting the shit with you... shadowboxers?

Go to www.tape.tv
Search "The Killing Type" - you'll find the official video! It's not in HD unfortunately...

If someone could rip the HD version and upload it to a filesharing site, pleeeeaasasseee
i'm downloading now the 1080p and i'll upload it somewhere but i will be leaving shortly from my house for some errands so it will take a couple of hours till i have a link

The Killing Type: http://www.sendspace.com/file/r4ubg2

I hope this is allowed, I apologise if it isn't.

YEEEEEESS!!!!!
A BIG BIG THANK YOU TO YOU TWO!!!!!!!!!!! O0 O0 O0 O0 :love5: :love5: :love5:
i just got back. i'm guessing the sendspace link is of the HD video so i don't need to post my link

You're right but I wanted to thank you for your effort anyway O0
you're welcome. i'll leave the video on my dropbox in case that link expires

I absolutely love the video. Every time I hear this song I just fall a little bit more in love with it, and the video makes it even better.

And seeing Sean's cover showing up in the related videos is awesome!

I can't get over how visually stunning this video is.
Need I say any more? Bravo Amanda & The Grand Theft Orchestra!
So proud to see all the hard work paying off <3

Yeah, Dexter was the first thing that came to my mind when we saw the guy lying on the bed, amanda sat up, surrounded by plastic-y curtains. I wonder if it was an intentional reference...
I wonder if it was used to keep the studio they were working in from getting covered with "blood"!

You know, I didn't even notice that until you guys mentioned it, then I had to go back and watch.  I am RIVETED by this video.  It's horrifying and so incredibly visceral (no pun intended, really!)

I love how she throws herself into videos wholeheartedly (OMG no pun intended, I swear!) 

Sigh, I 'll stop now.  Tim fucking Pope rox my stripey sox.

Well, I like it and I haven't been so keen on Amanda's solo stuff previously. But do I mainly like it because I grew up in the New Wave era and the vocal style in this reminds me of... who exactly? Can't put my finger on it...

I love this song and I really like the video! But did anyone notice how similar it is to Pain of Salvation's video for their song "Where It Hurts", from 2011?
Here's the PoS video:

Uncensored version: http://vimeo.com/21718015
Censored version: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MGt1uBQv4Rc

A clear influence or great minds think alike?

^ I don't know, wouldn't surprise me. But I'm going to sound like an immature fan and just say “I think Amanda did it better”.

i see the similarities between the two videos, but the end results are completely different. plus, i don't really like the PoS video. the camera work is annoying and the black blood is not as visually stimulating.
